OEM Durst (Brixen, Italy) will be celebrating a 100th installation milestone at a customer site for its highly successful Tau RSC technology platform – only two years after a successful market launch. In the coming weeks, a major label converter in Europe will become the 100th customer of a Durst Tau 330 RSC UV inkjet single-pass label press. “The machine will soon be providing high quality label production with unmatched productivity and uptime levels,” said Durst. Huge interest was created when Durst originally unveiled the Tau 330 RSC at Labelexpo 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. “Visitors were surprised by what Durst’s RSC technology promised in terms of print quality and productivity performance, with 1200 x1200 dpi resolution and 80 linear metres printing speed at full colour,” the company added.
Nine months later, and after a successful beta test of this “groundbreaking” printing technology, Durst started delivery of the first Tau 330 RSC Presses. Since then, increasing numbers of small, medium and large-sized label converters have opted for a Durst Tau 330 RSC, the more economical Tau 330 RSC E, or the new Tau RSCi. Since the middle of this year, Durst has continued installations with the first Tau RSCi 330, 420 and 510 label presses (which form its latest press portfolio expansion) of Durst’s Tau RSC platform.
“Introduced two years ago, the Tau 330 RSC and Tau 330 RSC E set a new benchmark in label printing,” said Helmuth Munter, Durst’s Segment Manager for Labels & Flexible Packaging. “Now, with 100 installations around the world, we feel honoured by the trust and confidence in Durst of our satisfied Tau RSC users. We are confident – and continuous positive customer feedback backs this – that our updated Tau RSC platform will continue to set the benchmark for the future of industrial digital inkjet printing in the label and packaging industry.”
